Ring Flash – Discovery of the Month

Ring Flash A discussion

The other day I stumbled upon a cool gadget called Ring Flash.

These flashes, as the name suggests, produce a circular flash of light. Its most important characteristic is providing even illumination with few shadows visible in the photograph, as the origin of the light is very close to (and surrounds) the optical axis of the lens.

Ring flashes are popular among fashion, macro and portrait photographers.

There are two models that caught my eye.
